Technology is constantly coming up with new ways to manage our time, tasks and social connections, and our smartphones are increasingly the hub for all those innovations.

And with the advent of wearable technology, we're no longer using our phones to communicate -- we're using them to get data on personal health and well-being.

Several new devices and software will make fully disconnecting from your phone harder to do. Take Larklife, which measures your posture and the amount of hours in the day you spend at a computer or driving, then compiles that data for potentially depressing insight into your daily routines.

The data can be useful, but it's coming more and more exclusively through smartphones, which makes putting down your cellular sidekick easier said than done.

Some of these new devices have incredibly useful functions. Mimo, produced by Rest Devices, monitors an infant's breathing and sleeping and feeds that data along with weekly movement trends to a smartphone app that parents can check.

Check out the slideshow below for some devices and apps that will make you even more glued to your phone:
